    Looks good. Anyone know roughly when its due?

    LCD TV (LE40M61B)
    Samsung's 40” LCD TV (LE40M61B) was honoured with an EISA award for its premium display technology in terms of contrast ratio (5000:1), color expression (6.44 billion colors, 92% color gamut for NTSC) , viewing angle (178 °) and response time (8 ms). Also the model's simple body design focuses the viewer's attention on the screen. On the front of the minimalist design, the speakers are hidden from view in the bottom bezel and nothing distracts from the superb image quality

    Spec sounds good but some of the samsung sites have this on already but contrast ratios only listed as 800:1 :confused:

    Cant read it as in foreign language. The manual is available for .pdf doenload in uk english.

    Most LCD TV's quote a contrast ratio of 800:1 for their 32"+ LCD panels, for Samsung to suddenly quote 5000:1 should says it all really.........unless Samsung have suddenly discovered some new technology and kept it very quiet!

    Nice looking TV though...looking forward to seeing this in action

    I have a gut feeling it wont be out this year...judging by the manual it doesnt seem all that different to the current 40" it does have a faster response time though.

    Also not sure i like the look of the new one. looks like a jumbo pc monitor. all other specs seem about the same.

    I spoke to Samsung UK just yesterday about this 61B model and the guy had never even heard of it. I told him it won the EISA award for best LCD 2005/2006 and he looked it up and sounded surprised. So i don't think we are going to see this one in the near future....can u put a link in here to a website that a pic of the 61B model please. Thank you!

    So do i go for the LE32R41B or the new Sagem HDL32T??? If only i knew what he PQ was like on the Sagem...hmmmm

    Initial reports said it's be this month, not next year. It's going to be sold in conjunction with the current range. Hope it is.
